De uitvinding van het joodse volk

"A nation is a group of people united by a common mistake regarding its origin and a collective hostility towards its neighbours." (Karl W. Deutsch)

Israeli scholar Professor Shlomo Sand proves that the Jewish people never existed as coherent nation state but rather as a mix of groups that at various stages in history adopted the Jewish religion.
